He was 86.

It is funny how when the government is bankrupt everyone just assumes there is nothing that can be done and that the government's debtors will have to deal with it but when it is the individual who is bankrupt the government will sell all their assets and imprison them.

The good news is, the writers, producers, and star in this show were probably very close in their values.
